The most exciting new face and body treatments are at OleHenriksen

October 17, 2014

I’m delighted to let you know that the OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa is to launch a series of *NEW* Skin Rejuvenation Face and Body Treatments that utilize light heat and energy technology.

Skin Rejuvenation Face and Body Treatment ($250) 

The Micro Photo Face Treatment ($100)

Catering to the power players of Hollywood since 1975, the OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa is the force behind much of the beautiful and glowing skin seen on and off the big screen. OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa continues to be the destination for healthy and youthful skin and body-care with essential preventative and reactive treatments for all skin types and lifestyles.

Right now, OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa proudly introduces The Skin Rejuvenation Face And Body Treatment and The Micro Photo Face And Body Treatment; combining the luxurious setting of the Spa with cutting edgesuperior light and heat technology.

Both treatments generate instant results with no downtime required. 

The Skin Rejuvenation Face And Body Treatment can be used to significantly improvehyper-pigmentation, vascular lesions, rosacea, acne, fine lines, wrinkles and overall skin tone and clarity, plus hair removal for the face and body. The treatment process stimulates skin cell turnover on the face, neck, arms, legs and buttocks to combat skin degradations and imperfections for beautifully flawless skin from head to toe.

The Micro Photo Face Treatment incorporates the same technology and techniques as the Light Energy Face And Body Treatment, but with a less intensive approach. This treatment is the ideal stepping stone from from traditional spa facials to the superior results of the Skin Rejuvenation Face and BodyTreatment. After one Micro Face And Body Treatment, skin is visibly tightened, wrinkles are reduced, broken capillaries are diminished, skin texture and clarity is significantly improved.

How it works:

By pulsating heat and light across the face and/or body, the heat that follows the light pulse coagulates the skin cells and triggers a healing process. Melanin is broken down and collagen is produced by targeting the dermal-epidermal skin layers, resulting in a clearer, smoother and younger looking complexion.

“Light Therapies have come a long way in many years, but nothing to date is on par with this Light Heat Energy technology we will be debuting in the Spa, this Fall. These treatments are going to be the markings to a new wave of Light Therapy skin regeneration treatments. Think of this as work out for your face” – expresses President Vance Soto, Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa. Further, Soto recommends “layering the superior results of Light Energy Treatments with traditional spa treatments, such as our hero Oxygen Facial.”

A typical treatment will last for around 30 minutes, finished with a relaxing copper cooling mask and specialized serum; only available at the OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa to aid in photo damage recovery.

For the treatment of topical skin issues, the Spa recommends a series 2 treatments for a period of  4 weeks.

This oil is pure enough to use everywhere. I mean, you know, for skin too.

Giveaway! Turn your shower into a spa with Essio Aromatherapy Shower Kit

October 6, 2014

Essio Shower Kit


(just comment on this point and follow us on Twitter and Facebook and the first tweet we see is the winner!)

I am so obsessed with this product – I wonder if I can enter the contest myself?

If you are an aromatherapy junkie like myself,  you HAVE to enter this contest – if you don’t, then just buy one.

End of story.

(no wait, there’s more)

ESSIO is a unique and one of a kind item that transforms the everyday shower into a personal
spa. It’s an affordable luxury and a great gift. It makes your shower amazing!
  • The product is extremely easy to install. It usually takes less than 1 minute to get the entire starter kit set up, and with no tools!
  • The attachment arm clips onto the standard shower pipe that is in most showers. The pod snaps onto place on the end and extend over the shower head into the water, instantly creating aroma.
  • Each pod will last around 4 – 5 showers on average, but you can get more by tilting the device up and saving for later
  • The oils are 100% USDA-certified organic and there are no synthetics or harsh chemicals used whatsoever
  • There are multiple benefits associated with aromatherapy including reduced inflammation, increased blood circulation, and reduced stress and improved mental well-being.
  • The whole kit is made from fully recyclable materials, so it’s a green product.
A few common misconceptions about the product:
  • The oil does not spray into the shower. The oil is slowly diffused using patented technology so you get a consistent aroma experience throughout the shower
  • The oils do not leave an oily residue on the skin, hair or bath. You just get pure aromatherapy.

Essio Shower Kit

How it Works:

ESSIO transforms your shower into a luxurious spa-like experience at a fraction of the cost. It’s easy to install, simple to use, sustainably made and 100% organic. Instant aromatherapy when you need it most. Clip the ESSIO attachment arm onto your shower pipe. Secure the attachment by pressing the locking clamp upwards so it snaps onto the attachment clip.
